“Lady Justice: Women of the Court”

New to the podcast scene, this show is only eight episodes in and is already worth talking about. Four sitting state Supreme Court justices — Rhonda Wood of Arkansas, Bridget McCormack of Michigan, Eva Guzman of Texas and Beth Walker of West Virginia — discuss the ins and outs of law, explore the often-overlooked state courts and even shine a light on taboo topics like mental health struggles among legal professionals.

“Blackbelt Voices”

Hosts Adena White, Kara Wilkins and Katrina Dupins explore the nuances of living at the intersection of Black and Southern cultures in this podcast.
